heat there. obama and romney both pulling 49% of support out of likely voters. this is in line with that tightening national race according to a number of major polls. so why is, or is it your view, that ohio is kind of the microcosm of the country? >> ohio is, indeed, fredricka. it always is. it's tied this time, but if you were to compare, let's say, texas or utah with new york and put them all in one state, you would have ohio. >> so the president has traveled to that state at least 24 times, mitt romney somewhere more than 40 times this year alone. both of them clearly know it's a very important state. but at this juncture, as the two still will descend on ohio with just a few days before election day, if everything goes according to plan, what do ohioans need to hear from them? >> i think they need assurance from the president that things will get better. things are bad, everyone knows that, but that they'll improve, that the worst is over, if he can convey that effectively. governor romney needs to continue to persuade voters that obama has had his four years, it's time f

, as you know that. president obama, mitt romney both spent the day in the state of ohio. romney gave a speech in wisconsin this morning before heading there, the president had rallies in three different cities in ohio. latest cnn/orc poll shows the president leading romney by just three points in ohio, razor-thin lead within the poll's margin of error. >> our national political correspondent jim acosta and white house correspondent jessica yellin. the candidates' messages are very different but their itinerary couldn't be more similar, could it? >> that's right. they are basically battling for the same swing states over the next three days, three final days of this campaign. mitt romney is in ohio right now, he goes to new hampshire tomorrow morning, then heads to iowa, colorado and later this weekend, heading into monday, he goes to virginia and florida. you know, anderson, you can lay the battleground map for president obama and mitt romney almost on top of one another, because their schedules are so similar. >> jessica, all year long, people have been pointing to this final jobs r

[ male announcer ] and it's not just these owners giving the volt high praise. volt received the j.d. power and associates appeal award two years in a row. ♪ thing anyone here on staten island is thinking about is the presidential election or politics. i think people are sick right now of politicians and promises and a lot of people here just feel, i was just talking to a gentleman during a commercial break who is outraged. he feels politicians have forgotten them, especially the mayor and others, they feel like they haven't shown up here in force and not soon enough. it's really impossible for a lot of people on staten island to focus
disagree with me, today's jobs report offered talking points to both. we heard mitt romney say and we heard it earlier, that the fact that it inched up to 7.9%, even though there were 171,000 net new jobs, that permits mitt romney to say there are more people, higher rate of unemployment than when barack obama took office. so, the president can say we've got another month of new hiring and net pluses, so it becomes a wash. anybody disagree with that? >> no. i think that's right. i would say look, the best -- we've known for months i think that the best case political scenario for barack obama when it comes to the economy is sort of a muddle. that the way he loses is if the unemployment rate remains high, jobs -- the jobs are not -- are 75,000, 80,000 jobs created no talking point where he can say it's not where we want it to be but i think it's getting better, so i think a muddle -- it's sort of the tie goes to the incumbent. in baseball, be it's muddled enough it winds up not helping mitt romney which means it helps barack obama a little bit. >> let me ask you, charlie, just switching gear
obama and governor romney both in ohio holding campaign events. we'll check in with our political panel and get a live report on the ground from the campaign following both the president and governor romney. the final four. it all certainly counts now. a? colin powell: yes. when he took over we were in one of the... worst recessions we had seen in recent times... close to a depression. and i saw, over the next several years, stabilization... come back in the financial community. housing is starting to pick up. the president saved the auto industry. and the actions he's taken with respect to... protecting us from terrorism have been very, very solid. and so, i think we ought to keep on the track that we are on. president obama: i'm barack obama and... i approve this message. then you may be looking for help in choosing the right plan for your needs. so don't wait. call now. whatever your health coverage needs, unitedhealthcare can help you find the right plan. open enrollment to choose your medicare coverage begins october 15th and ends december 7th. so now is the best time to review you
a close look at governor romney's campaign. even before that going back to the 2008 cycle, both senator obama at the time and governor romney, spending time with the editorial board. we have talked to the candidates. we have really explore the issues. is our endorsement matter? i think it does. it has been a century at least that we have endorsed a presidential candidate. it is part of our tradition. politics is indeed dna of the des moines register. we take very seriously the first in the nation status as a caucus state. we take seriously the ability to affect candidates that are not on the radar screen until after they emerge from iowa. very informal opportunity to sit down over coffee to talk about what is in front of us. what is the position for that. i do think our endorsement matters. we probably spent a lot of time doing diligence and being thoughtful in all of our conversations, particularly the final one to support governor mitt romney. host: we are talking with the editor of the des moines register. let me ask you about the process. you had a telephone conversation that ran 30
romney has been trying to make. >> all right. so it sounds like they are looking to both sides for the argument there. john, ali, good to see you both. wheat get back to you in a bit. he is furious because the island residents were not told until it was too late about how to get emergency food, shelters, and schools. trucks full of supplies and fema disaster teams are now on the ground in staten island. many people there say that is all that they have got. our brian todd is hearing stories today. watching help arrive. all he's folks. brian, first of all, tell us about the supplies, about the crews and the complaints here. it seems like this is a very difficult situation for folks. >> it is very difficult, suzanne. still very difficult. yesterday when we came here, this place was like a war zone. it looked like a shelled out just bombed out neighborhood. scenes like this behind me are all over the place, and make no mistake, it is still a very devastated scene. you do get a sense that all this morning that this neighborhood is coming back to life. people all over the streets. yo
took a tumble. both the president and governor romney reacted to the report during stops on the campaign trail this morning. >> we made real progress, but we are here today because we know we've got more work to do. >> unemployment is higher today than when barack obama took office. think of that. >> and joining any now is "newsweek" columnist zachary caribel. let's get your analysis of the numbers. >> unemployment ticked up, but statistically it's a nonfactor. it's been where it is now for the past six, seven, eight months. it doesn't matter who is elected on tuesday. that's likely where we are. it's the only more than silver lining is you have moderate job creation. i think no one would prefer having less than 171,000 jobs created in a month. that's where we are right now. >> the anticipation was 125,000 job woos would be added. it's so intriguing the dynamics playing out in the northeast with sandy. when we started with a big calendar ticking down the job reports and the one right before the election, there was some analysis this would be big. it's not. >> one thing th
percent of people without power. we can't have a situation where... >> both the president and mitt romney are having to make difficult decisions in the days ahead amidst criticism he is cutting fema mr. romney refocused campaign events to serve as relief drive. >> part of the american spirit the american way to give to people who are in need. your generosity this morning touches my heart. i appreciate what you have done. >> now the impact that any of this is going to have, this election it's tough to say. look for a moment at the mass of power outages. look how many potential swing states are affected here. new hampshire, pennsylvania, north carolina, michigan, and of course ohio. >> ohio is the big one. >> 20 minutes before the hour. these planes will not be going anywhere any time soon. at least 18,000 flights canceled as three of the nation's busiest airports shut down for sandy. that is laguardia airport in new york. it looks like a beach doesn't it? >> used to be a runway. >> a crane hanging by a thread 65 stories above a busy new york street. coming up a crane expert says it could h
and mitt romney. both those campaigns. the president is leaving d.c. tonight before the weather worsens. and instead of tomorrow as first planned to get down to florida. mitt romney also having to change his itinerary. that's why we are going now to cnn's jim acosta always with the romney campaign and traveling with them. jim, the storm already having an impact on where you're going, isn't it? >> reporter: that is right, don. for the final nine days of the campaign, throw out the white dry erase board and perhaps take the doppler weather radar and lay it over the battleground map because that's how we track this campaign heading into the homestretch here. both campaigns, if you add them together of roughly a dozen campaign events so far between the president and mitt romney, mitt right now is heading to the gymnasium here in marion, ohio, with an event here tomorrow morning and then is getting out of the state. but, don, it will be very interesting to watch the final days of the campaign because of this storm. you saw the president also canceling events. not here in ohio, but his campai
. and also, you had gm and chrysler auto executives both coming out and condemning mitt romney. so the people who should naturally be supporting mitt romney in the last week of the campaign, they're actually supporting barack obama. and that's got to hurt. >> all right. thank you so much. i really appreciate y'all coming on. we'll see you in the next few days. thank you. >>> and developing news right now that we just referenced, janet napolitano is on the ground right now in new york city as major problems persist after hurricane sandy. lines two miles long just to get gas. >>> and we're told within the last hour, there's a four-hour traffic jam in the lincoln tunnel. we'll get a live update for you. >>> plus, congressman todd akin was abandoned by the national gop establishment over his, quote, legitimate rape comments. but now akin is putting hundreds of thousands of dollars into a major ad blitz. the question is where is the money coming from? it is just one of the things we thought you should know, and you can joinous conversation on twitter. you can find us @tamronhall and @newsnation. [
counts for both tickets. obama is campaigning in virginia and colorado earlier this week. romney, well, he's cancelled his debates in virginia and he's on a bus tour of ohio. so mitt romney has now an important endorsement out of iowa. the des moines register has chosen romney because they say it's all about the economy. it marks the first time in 40 years that the newspaper has backed a republican and the presidential general election. meanwhile, president obama has added the "new york times" to his endorsement column, the editorial page listed obama's achievement like saving the auto industry and health care reform as reasons for the endorsement. it he has not backed a republican since dwight eisenhower. >> ohio considered quite the price that could win either condition dat at the house. >> obama is scheduled to leave washington, he's not scheduled to leave washington today in fact he's staying close to the white house because of this storm. >> in newest poll in the state of ohio says mitt romney may have condition to be concerned. as we have said, it's a close rate there, we have as
that plays out over the days. >> it plays for governor romney. both of these guys, you cannot ignore a fact a week from today is the election. charles: right. >> so, he has to do everything he can -- well, the president has to do everything he has to do. charles: how does it help romney. >> criticize iffed he doesn't do his job. he's criticized if he does too much and make it look political. romney is going, i just have to not make it look political right now. >> romney has to focus on what he needs to do for the campaign. this isn't a political situation, this is an american situation, the storm is hurting americans, no matter what their party affiliation, the president has a responsibility as president of the united states, which means, communicate with your governors, you know, people are going to argue whether it hurts or helps him. what matters is the campaign and the final seven days leading into it is going to be how their ground game. charles: but the point is though, david, the president does look like he's doing that job and walking the fine line, being presidential, being attenti
tomorrow and tuesday to monitor the situation from the white house. he and mitt romney are both canceling appearances in virginia. romney is instead campaigning today in ohio. >>> with a little more than a week to go before the presidential election, it is down to the wire in the crucial swing states and the polls are tightening up. with that in mind, fox news sunday is hosting a swing state showdown this morning. senators from wisconsin, colorado, ohio, and virginia will discuss the all-important ground game in their states, as well as the economy and developments in libya. virginia senator mark warner will be on the show supporting president obama. he'll also talk about the contest between tim kaine and george allen. that's coming up at 9:00, right after fox 5 morning news. . >>> it's your look at the new and noteworthy in the week ahead. it is the capital rundown for the week of october 29th, 2012. on monday at 9:30 a.m., the united states supreme court hears arguments in the case of james clapper versus amnesty international. the case looks at the constitutionality of federal wiretapp
with the biggest whopper of this campaign. i mean we've seen a lot of big lies coming from the romney campaign. i mean on a lot of different topics right? particularly mitt romney trying to have it both ways or three ways on almost every issue. you never know where he really stands on any issue. the biggest lie of all is this lie in the last couple of days, mitt romney is trying to sell the people of ohio -- it doesn't look like they're buying it. the latest poll shows president obama up five still in ohio. but we know what's going on, right? no doubt about it. president obama is winning ohio. largely because he saved the auto industry and so many -- tens of thousands of jobs in ohio depend on the auto industry. so many families from the auxiliary businesses. in fact, the unemployment rate in ohio is lower than it is nationwide because the auto industry is back. thanks to president obama. g.m. is back making better cars than ever before. chrysler reported an 80% increase in their number in the third quarter of this
in the way. the october jobs report will be released in three and a half hours. both the obama and romney campaign hope the numbers will help them in the race. it's too close to call right now. christine romans is going to have a look at it. christine? >> let's talk about what we are expecting in the final economic report before tuesday. in three and a half hours, we'll find out what happens for jobs and the unemployment rate. the expectation is the unemployment rate is 7.9%, picking up slightly with 125,000 jobs added in the month. the trend, though, is what is so important here, right? sometimes you get a little in the month. the trend is what's important. 7.8% was the unemployment rate when the president took office. last month, he's back to where he started. february, 2009, that's the stimulus. then the unemployment rate rise up to 10% in october, 2009 as the stimulus money was being deployed. stubbornly high unemployment. then drifting lower much of this year. we can look at job creation and you can see how jobs have been added now since the end of 2010 consistently, but not robustly
for both governor romney and congressman ryan on tuesday. governor romney believes this is a time for the nation's leaders to focus on those americans who are in harm's way. we will provide additional details with regarding governor romney's schedule when they are available. he also added my campaign will be run by the big oil companies. if i'm president you can expect a lot more of these kinds of storms over the next four years because i don't give a dam about climate change and the storms they produce. oh that was not part of the official statement. okay. and then of course leave it to fox news to say if romney's canceling events. that's fine. what a gentleman he is. what a terrific human being. if president obama is canceling events disarray. >> the president left for orlando. nothing has changed that much. does it show disarray or discontent within the obama election campaign where he comes down doesn't do anything, and then flies back. >> the president can be unpredictable. a lot of reason why they brought the president back was they didn't know how bad the weather would be i
the guitar on the stage, both sides say the job numbers back up their case, both the president and mitt romney spending much of their day here in the state of ohio, how important is the buckeye state? so important that betweenq the two of them they will be here five more times over the next three days. charging into the campaign's final weekend, each candidate tried to frame the latest unemployment reports to his advantage, as either a sign of economic progress. >> this morning, we learned that companies hired more people in october than at any time in the last eight months. >> reporter: or stalled growth. >> today we learned it is actually 7.9%, and that is 9 million jobs short of what he promised. >> reporter: analysts say both men make valid points. >> there is no question we came out of the lull, where the economy stalled, we've pushed away from it, the bad news it is pretty low. >> reporter: mr. romney indicted his opponent's record. >> candidate obama promised change but couldn't deliver it. i promise change, but i have a record of achieving it. >> reporter: and in four days, prom
romney, the margin of error is 3 percentage points. the lines are burning up. i visited both campaigns. it is sort of a symphony of noise. dayton, ohio, these volunteers are trying to reach everyone they can as the clock ticks towards election day. >> do you ever get distracted by all the people around you calling? >> no, we don't. we talk all the time. and everybody is talking. right now they have all stopped. but no, we talk at the same time and get the same message out to whomever we're talking. >> reporter: chris cameron and her husband, bill butler, traveled a long way to help the president. >> reporter: why is it so important? >> well, we're from california, but came to ohio, california is kind of a safe state. we wanted to be where the action was, and it is very important to get every single voter out there. >> reporter: she is the lead veteran here. >> how long have you been doing this? >> oh, about 50 years. >> reporter: 50 years you have been volunteering for democrats? >> yes, if they don't have rides we're standing, ready to pick them up to carry them and put them right on
to the finish and mi both mitt romney and obama focusing on ohio. tracie potts has the latest on the race. >> reporter: good morning. take a look at these scheduled. it is clear, they will be very busy. governor romney on sunday alone is visiting four states in one day. the rest of the candidates will be in ohio 12 times between now and election day. both of them in ohio today. governor romney making visits to seven states between now and tuesday, tonight in ohio, he will be joined by 100 other politicians and celebrities backing his campaign. president obama, every single day between now and tuesday in ohio. both making closing arguments to voters. >> that's why i know what real change looks like. because i fought for it. i've got the scars to prove it. i've got gray hair to show for it. you fought for it too. and after all that we've been through together, we sure as heck can't give up now. >> look, the obama campaign is out there chanting. i drove by a group of protester, and they said four more years. we have our own chant. it's five more days, all right? >> candidates and a lot of vo

: this is going to be one busy schedule for both of them. let's start with romney and show you what he will be up too tomorrow. he will travel to wisconsin and ohio and then over the weekend he will make five more trips to different states. moving onto obama tomorrow he will be in ohio as well and then he will visit six other battleground states over the weekend. we found out from the obama campaign that the president plans to hold his final event on monday in des moines iowa. no word on what romney plans to do. >> five more days. tonight in washington. thank you. >> the election is almost here but after a months of campaigning this little girl has had enough. after listening to politics on npr with year mom the 4-year- old just broke down. >> i'm tired of -- of obama and romney. >> that's why you're crying? >> npr sent her a pen and apology, saying sorry we made you cry about --. >> it doesn't get any bigger than the cma awards. we have them right here tonight. >> abc 2news. audrey godfrey catching the buzz. >> reporter: its music city's most memorandum afterrable night -- memorable night
. no motorcades there, folks. that means both romney, who is in ohio and iowa today, and the president will probably end up spending more of their time in the midwest than they had planned with possible stops in colorado and florida. second, barring problems with federal disaster response, the president is likely to have a messaging advantage, if you will, as he gets to run are the government. he does run the government. he is the president. he simply has to do his job. by comparison in the next four days, hurricane sandy will replace mitt romney, does he have momentum or not story as the lead of nearly every swing state newspaper and newscast. the lead story will not be something that goes along like today, romney took his message of change to fill in the blank. and finally, the storm could put a premium on mechanics. and while the romney campaign is certainly a lot better than john mccain's 2008 operation, the more this race focuses on mechanics, the better it is probably for the obama campaign. asked whether the storm could affect early voting, the president said that remains to be
has done to the campaign. both president obama and mitt romney altering their campaign schedules, of course. but there are two different positions. how does this play out? >> great coverage this morning. and i have to pause and say it's sobering to see the pictures, to think about all the people with kids who can't get to a shift they may need. and it's hard to talk clinically about the politics, but go ahead and put on the stethoscope here. and point out that the campaigns are not suspended, the campaigns have been going on, they're just having to be very ginger about how they navigate it. at the same time president obama yesterday was sending out an appeal to his campaign list for red cross donations, his campaign aides were on a conference call talking about how they're about to go up in ohio with an ad hammering romney. they also announce there as you were talking about they're going up in pennsylvania. the president has that automatic stage. we saw him acting there as commander in chief. mitt romney has to avoid looking like he's going for photo ops. looking like he's doing
. you were to be out campaigning on behalf of the romney ryan ticket. both the presidential contenders have agreed to cancel events in virginia so you can move forward with storm plans. i want to look at polls at how tight it is in the commonwealth. our latest poll has the romney ryan ticket up by two points. there is a new poll out from the washington post which gives the president a four-point advantage in virginia. ultimately boil it down to the average it is a tee right now, 47.8% for each ticket. how does the romney camp close strong and bring home the commonwealth for republicans? >> i do appreciate governor roesterday and checking on the weather situation and agreeing to cancel three events today. the president tomorrow as well. i think it is probably a dead heat but momentum clearly moving towards governor romney and it is because the issues really matter to virginia voters are in romney's favor. the jobs picture. governor romney has a plan. the president presided over 43 months of 8% unemployment. the crushing debt that is going to get worse under the president. governor romne
will come back. and then on thursday, both romney and obama will regain, you know, they will start to campaign again. looking forward, i don't see sandy as a factor. >> no, i don't. it might have marginal effects. it does show the president is presidential. people expect that in a national emergency. that's not really stuff. you might say that if you look at where the storm is spread. it's now in ohio and virginia. these are places where the obama campaign had counted on early voting and they made a big effort on that. the president himself cashed the ballot early first time in u.s. history way to encourage others. democrats thought that might be advantageous for them. more republicans than democrats who voted early. again i think that's probably a watch -- wash. one thing it might effect things as we resume the campaign. tomorrow is going to be a half and half day by the end of the week we will be back to campaigning. when you have this emergency and you have this tragedy and latest effects of the tragedy are going to go right through election day. not a one day deal. there is imp
hurt. >> reporter: the obama administration and the romney campaign have both softened their stance on fema cuts over the past few days. >> a 44-year-old facing charges in connection with an arson fire that damaged the law offices of the vallejo mayor. maude love pleaded not guilty to three counts of arson. the september 29th fire destroyed much of davis's law office. family members said that love suffer from mental illness. >> the vp hit the campaign trail in florida telling supporters that a romney presidenty would be bad news for women. >> imagine, imagine what the 40 years of progress, women have made in that country would -- what happened to it after four years of the romney appointed supreme court. >> reporter: the vice president held a rally in sarasota. he said he hopes after the election the country will pull together as they have in the response to sandy. biden also stopped at a diner, shaking hands and posing for pictures. >>> romney also campaigned in florida today holding three rallies in that state. >> with 23 million americans, you think about -- these are real pe
is what we do know, brian, both mitt romney and barack obama are not doing any campaign events at all tomorrow. and wednesday's schedule is still on the bubble. we'll see if they can get back on the trail. at that point it would be with just six days to go. >> well, chuck, what happens -- last time we had a hurricane, the halloween storm last year, we had power outages north of new york city. upstate new york, connecticut, rhode island, massachusetts, maine, vermont, eight to 11 days. what happens if people can't get to the polls to vote? is there a mechanism to delay a vote in certain places? >> reporter: well look, the states run the election system, it doesn't come from the government. i can tell you the topic came up. the fema director, fugate, did talk with officials. this is what happened in the state of florida when it happened in 2004. they moved polling places and got generators where it was necessary to open precincts. and by the way, the federal government reimbursed the state for those costs. that is why it came up, because state and local officials asked mr. fugate if the
campaign and the romney campaign. both have put a lot of bodies on the ground in these swing states. it is a really technologically sophisticated architecture for turning voters out. and one thing we're about to see is whose architecture is better. they have not led in an ohio poll in quite a while. they have not led in any of these nbc swing state polls, there are 32 of them according to twitter this morning. if their turnout model's better than obama's which seems unlikely from what i've heard, but if it is, that could change things. otherwise it's hard to see campaigning or another ad is going to do. people have heard it all by now. >> chuck, it's donny. obviously, we're all living through sandy. >> reporter: yes. >> you're in iowa or a wisconsin or an ohio swing voter, how does it play? >> reporter: you know, i think -- i'm guessing yesterday, seeing a roep aepublican and det working together. when you look at what i think has been a very effective closing message up until sandy happened, which was he was simply going to the -- wherever he was going, sometimes it was base counti
